Governing Food Security in Australia in an Era of Climate Change: A Sociological Analysis (2012–2014)

Ensuring Australia's food security is an emerging concern for the nation. This study will: evaluate the impacts upon food security of a range of resource and environmental factors, including climate change; examine the governance of food security; explore the food-security issues arising from the extreme weather events of 2011; and assess long- and short-chain systems of food provision at a time of crisis. Expected outcomes are: a critical understanding of the agencies responsible for food security governance; an assessment of the ability of the agrifood system to ensure food security; conceptual developments in food governance; and recommendations to improve food governance in Australia.
